Focus Exhibition: Bird Petyarre & Middlebrook (15 May – 22 Aug)

Anmatyerre painter and printmaker Ada Bird Petyarre and Blue Mountains based artist David Middlebrook were friends for the last three years of Ada’s life. They met by chance, and Ada taught David the difference between ‘looking at and being landscape’. The landscape works in this exhibition include a selection of paintings and works on paper by each artist as well as collaborative pieces.

Bookings are essential for all group visits. Please contact the Gallery at gallery@penrith.city to arrange your visit.

Further excursion offerings and workshops will be returning in Term 3.
